JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: The mark under the oval base says Andrea with a large red S above and below the Andrea printed in green.. Also N Y is printed to the left and right of the stamp
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Antiques Appraiser about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, You have a vintage Andrea by Sadek figurine that was made on commission for the American import market. The majority of wares were decorative and made in Japan, though some were produced elsewhere such as Germany or Czechoslovakia. They were founded in 1936 by Charles Sadek in New Rochelle, NY and they are still in business today. Here is a link for you to a brief history of Andrea for Sadek: On today's market, your figural, which is based on a Dresden style courtesan couple using music to represent the allegory of love, will likely sell for an average of $15 - $40. If it is large or from the early period of the company it can sell for up to $100. I will be happy to help you narrow that down by seeing images. There is not an additional charge to add and share more images here. There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos: ~OR~ You can try emailing your images to***@******.*** and write “For Nora/Antiques” in the subject line of the email. Photos sent by email do not arrive to me directly nor instantly, they get forwarded to me by admin. Please take a moment to leave a rating for my personal services to you here by clicking the stars. If you require further assistance, no worries, the question thread does not close even after leaving a rating. ~Nora
